    IMHO it suggests either there has been a massive disagreement on something behind the scenes or they made the decision some time ago but were concerned that it would look far worse sacking him after winning them a trophy.
    I thought the same about the timing, but, judging by what I heard on the radio today from one of the better BBC football correspondents,, the dressing room had been lost to such an extent that it could be argued that they definitely have a better chance of winning now.

    Yep takes some believing .

    Julian Nagelsmann perhaps ??

    Think Jose knows he is a short sharp appointment , Levy got someone in , did the club video documentary ,appointment of Jose covered up the dreadful loss of Pochettino, Jose pockets another couple more million in the bank , next fool please step up .

    Rumours are that is nearer the truth than Levy would have liked.

    Apparently, he refused to take the players out onto the training field as a protest against the Super League and he was given the elbow as a result.

    No idea if this is accurate or not but several people have told me similar versions of the same story.

    Or he he pushed the language towards Levy and the subject matter knowing he was a dead man walking ?

    If there's one thing he's definitely good at it's getting a team ready for a one off big game like a final, and he gets sacked the week before one, just when the Super League is announced. Convenient!

    If, as I suspect, the answer to the question I asked is no, how come us lot on a messageboard for a Championship club knew what was coming for Spurs and their fans, how come the decision makers at the club didn't?
    It is the outcome for almost every manager, they end by getting sacked. It goes with the territory.

    But according to a pundit on the radio today from the Guardian (Or the times, they were both on) he will almost certainly walk away with about £10 million in his sky.
    Not a bad reward for failure is it?

    No wonder he always has that smirk on his face.
    He keeps being rewarded for doing a crap job

    Think there's still a place for Mourinho in the game, but the chances for success are becoming increasingly slim. He needs a team choc full of horrible ****ers, no surprise his style failed at Spurs. More of an indictment against Spurs' players and their culture than Mourinho himself.

    Re: Mourinio sacked!

    Itís the three year contract that is baffling. He rarely stays that long!

    His style of football is increasingly getting left behind.
    He had some really good players at spurs and they would go ahead in games and then tried to grind out a 1-0, but the attacking quality throughout the premier league is just too good to do that these days.

    He also at every club scapegoats individual players and publicly lambasts them. Look at luke shaw at manu since he left - he's probably the best left back in the league this season. It usually ends in the entire dressing room hating him.

    At the last few clubs he's managed he's left their squad in a worse state than he took over. His trophy count is very impressive though - he's very much a "win now" manager, he might get you a trophy in the first season or two, but he'll spend a shit load of money, alienate all the players, not bring any youngsters through and leave you with an ageing squad that hates him and each other.

    Parkin has been quite clear on his podcast that when Malky came in he created an in-group and an out-group with the latter not getting a chance. It appears that Jose does this as well, except players pushed aside are usually more talented than Jon Parkin and on longer/more expensive contracts so less likely to leave quietly, which suggests they're either of same managerial school or Malky was directly influenced by Jose at the time.

    Not a surprise his next (last?) job is in Italy where all the usual criticism doesn't apply to his previous time there. Make or break time for his reputation as a manager though.

    Perhaps is cheaper risk than buying players for many more millions and failing , bearing in mind Vaulks is worth 6 million

    He first won the Champions' League in 2004. He last won it in 2010. He's had a phenomenal career. It's just not his time anymore.

    I think Mourinho is one of the best examples of the view that managers get more cautious as they get older - that said, he was always more cautious than the group of younger managers that emerged about fifteen years ago and one in particular, Pep, seems to have become something of an obsession with Mourinho. I think he's lucky to get such a good job (albeit, rather like Spurs, at a level down from the sort of clubs he managed in his pomp) because it seems like five years plus since he's won anything worthwhile.

    It's a very different club that he's joining in a country where he's achieved his greatest success and has his reputation most intact. Will be very interesting to watch what happens next.
